UK leader May seen fighting for survival after election failure

What Is a Hung Parliament? UK Elections Exit Polls Predicts May to Lose Majority, so What Happens Next?

What Is a Hung Parliament? UK Elections Exit Polls Predicts May to Lose Majority, so What Happens Next?

But in one of the most sensational nights in British electoral history, a resurgent Labour Party denied her an outright win, throwing the country into political turmoil as no clear victor emerged. Being the first party in the House, she doubtless has the constitutional right to try to form a government. "All over the world, people are rising up against austerity and massive levels of income and wealth inequality".

British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will form a new government with the help of her "friends" in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party after an election debacle that resulted in her Conservative Party losing its parliamentary majority. The Conservatives are in talks with the Democratic Unionist Party to form a minority government. "Britain is part of Europe, even if it will no longer be part of the European Union". Following the failed 2014 independence referendum, the Nationalists won 54 out of 57 Scottish seats in 2015; a key component of their campaign this time was to get a new independence referendum as early as next March.

The initial reaction to the general election outcome has been to send the pound plunging.

Britain voted to leave the European Union in a referendum past year in what became popularly known as Brexit. Their MPs, as radical Irish nationalists, do not take their seats in the British parliament, so the more of them there are, the fewer seats a party parliament effectively needs to win a majority.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the early results showed May had lost her mandate and called for her to resign. The Labour Party sure looked down and out in recent weeks, but it made a major surge when it actually mattered in Thursday's election.

The Green Party, SNP, Plaid Cymru have all spoken in favour of alliances, although the Liberal Democrats - for whom a coalition with the Conservatives has already proved devastating - had ruled out joining with other parties.

That being said, it's important to ask what exactly we mean by a "bad deal"?

Timothy said he took responsibility for the Conservative manifesto, including a plan for elderly social care that caused a backlash among many core voters. "Absolutely", Corbyn told Sunday Mirror newspaper in an interview. However, no party received the absolute majority of seats in parliament and the election has resulted in a hung parliament. "There's a possibility of voting it down and we're going to push that all the way", he explained.

It is highly likely that Mrs May too would hold back on any resignation until she has had time to test whether she has the support to attempt to continue in office.

Despite campaigning against Brexit, Labour has accepted the result but said it would prioritise maintaining close economic ties with the EU.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was facing reports of deep disquiet in her Conservative party Saturday following an election that severely dented her parliamentary clout.
